Orchestra & Chamber Music
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Pinchas Zukerman, conductor and violin

Overture to Egmont
Violin Concerto No. 5, Turkish
Symphony No. 5
Under the direction of the inimitable Pinchas Zukerman, now in his eleventh season as the ensemble's principal guest conductor, Britain's Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is hailed for the polish and nuance of its performances. Zukerman leads the orchestra in Beethoven's regal Egmont Overture and Tchaikovsky's dramatic and dynamic Fifth Symphony. He also lends his burnished tone and commanding presence as a soloist to a signature work, Mozart's radiant Fifth Violin Concerto. "He combined tenderness (without sentimentality) with passion, his sweet tone lending aristocratic grace" (Bachtrack).
